Publisher Description:

"The two women stood side by side at the doorway of the master bedroom looking in at the naked body resting on the floor. They recognized who it was, of course. Mitch Thompson, the general contractor of the new tract.
The tall blonde, Jane, swayed and her petite brunette friend, Maggie, turned to steady her. “I’m going to be sick,” Jane groaned.
“You can’t throw up, I just cleaned the bathroom,” Maggie warned her. And, of course, this reason made perfect sense. Jane’s eyes remained riveted on Mitch’s body and Maggie’s were unavoidably drawn back to it.
For the truly horrific part of the tableaux before them wasn’t just the naked body but the adornment affixed to the corpse.
What is that thing? Maggie thought to herself, curiosity not enough to propel her into the room to find out."
PUBLISHER WEEKLY REVIEW: "There's more fun than malice in this domestic murder mystery; readers will enjoy not only the sleuthing but following Orange County single mom, Maggie, as she goes about doing the many odd jobs that it takes to keep her family of three sons afloat...A wide range of zany secondary characters circle around Maggie and the plot, each adding something whacky to the mix. The repartee between Maggie and Jane is genuinely funny and the entire production appealing mystery comedy."
